This degree programme has been designed for those who wish to gain a higher-level qualification in business management and prefer to study locally in King's Lynn.
The course has recently been revised to include modules on employability skills and enterprise and a deeper focus on global business. The BSc (Hons) Business Management modules mirror those taught at Anglia Ruskin University and can be studied full-time (3 years) or part-time (6 years) and is usually taught over 3 days.
When you graduate from this course you'll be primed to pursue a career in a wide range of industries, such as banking, fashion, tourism or education - or specific roles including human resources, marketing, finance or operations.
Your work on each module will be assessed through exams and/or written assignments. Assignments tend to be a maximum of 3,000 words for 15-credit modules and 6,000 usually split into three 2,000-word assignments for 30 credit modules. Exams are usually two hours long.

The course fee assumes that you’re studying at half the rate of a full time student (50% intensity). Course fees will be different if you study over a longer period. All fees are for guidance purposes only.
You can pay your fees in the following ways.
Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
If you choose not to take out a loan you can pay your fees directly to us. There are two ways to do this: either pay in full, or through a three- or six-month instalment plan starting at registration.
Most new undergraduate students can apply for government funding to support their studies and university life. This includes Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans. There are additional grants available for specific groups of students, such as those with disabilities or dependants.
We also offer a fantastic range of ARU scholarships, which provide extra financial support while you’re at university. Find out more about eligibility and how to apply.
From September 2018, EU students starting an undergraduate degree with us can access an £800 bursary.
Meanwhile, our £400 Books Plus scheme helps with the costs of study. There's no need to apply for this: if you're eligible you can simply collect a Books Plus card when you start your course.
